What’s the problem?

This page answers in full the question why does DAS do what it does? You can download a summary below.

This clip is from 2015. Nothing has changed or improved. (It’s not for the faint hearted.)

This is why DAS and charities like us around the UK are needed. And yet we are entirely dependent on grants and donations to keep us going. We have no statutory funding and raising money is mostly high risk and puts a great strain on the organisation. Please do help us and give generously if you can.

Donations and grants of every kind are what keep us going, able to serve those who need us most. Below you can find out as an individual, an employee or a business how you can help to support the worthwhile things we do. It is so important to communities throughout rural East Suffolk

YOUR donation can really help. Find out here how each amount funds a part of the service.
